The project is funded by Highland Culture Strategic Board’s ‘Highland Culture: Take Pride, Take Part’ programme.
We have commissioned four artists to work with four Highland shinty clubs during the 2017-18 seasons, to produce artwork which will be displayed initially at the Camanachd Cup Final in 2018. They are:
- Roddy Buchanan – Fort William Shinty Club
- John McNaught – Skye Camanachd
- Deirdre Nelson – Newtonmore Camanachd
- Tom Smith – Beauly Shinty Club
“Highland Print Studio is delighted to have appointed four artists of this calibre to Throw Up 20.18, who will now link with the shinty community to create visual art that pays tribute to the Highlands’ iconic sport. We look forward to working with the artists, the shinty clubs, their communities and the Camanachd Assocation, and are excited to see how the collaboration develops.” Alison McMenemy (Director, Highland Print Studio)
